Epic Thriller // Kelly Coats

July 11, 2009

MJ Swirl

The evolution of King of Pop in a twirl by Kelly Coats reminds me of a kaleidoscope. It shows the physical transition of MJ from childhood to adulthood.

Kelly says:

” I created this phenakistiscope (old optical toy), titled Epic Thriller, for my solo exhibition at Rimjaus Gallery in 2005. It was also presented at the um…My gallery exhibit at The Brewery Arts Colony Gallery in 2008. Below you can see a simulation of what the animation looks like when you set this optical toy in motion.”
